NEAR MISS   

Josh Berry, Ron Elliott  
(USA, 2018, 12 mins)    

Off the Northern California coast, a man dives alone with great white sharks. In cold, unforgiving waters, he enters a transcendent space and reflects on his life and his unforgettable encounters with these mysterious creatures. 

THE WEIGHT OF WATER    

Michael Brown (in person)  
(USA, 2018, 78 mins)    

Kayaking the Grand Canyon is epic; imagine doing it blind.

Having summited Mt. Everest, blind athlete Erik Weihenmayer doesn’t shy away from challenges. Yet, kayaking without sight requires a leap of faith: blindly plunging through massive rapids with only verbal cues from a guide. It's complete trust. Gorgeous cinematography captures this extraordinary expedition, one in which two blind men kayak the entire length of the Grand Canyon. Yes, they use other senses to compensate, but fear and anxiety mount, as the trip, and its challenges, unfold.
